Your style is your art and your body is a canvas. It’s how you express yourself. Style can completely shape the mood of your day with splashes of color, bold patterns or structured textiles. Some even think certain items can bring them good fortune or emotional stability. Finding your style can sometimes take your whole lifetime. For others, it can be changed every couple months of so. Regardless of how you style your beautiful soul, we love seeing inspiration come from diverse and beautiful cultures, countries and innovative minds, but hate to see unethical practices behind each beautiful piece you adorn yourself with. Our approach to personal style isn’t just about the simple thoughts that go into your choice for a daily outfit or special occasion; we believe in incorporating ethical values, fair trade and craftsmanship.
We’ve put together a quick 3 step guide to help you with ethical styling that continues to bring goodness to mother earth, empower workers, and gives back to social causes that impact communities around the world. Learn more about what works best for your beautiful canvas, how to wear ethical pieces, and our recommendations from our collections below!
